Hope the transcript matches normal presentation mores. And I thought I'd keep the title text explanation simple - so I haven't wasted much time if it gets utterly changed. Mattdevney (talk) 12:55, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Does anyone else notice a weird white line through the dates? Djbrasier (talk) 14:39, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

I came here to ask about that. Linea alba (talk) 16:13, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Haha, your username is linea alba. 19:23, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Same here. I'm wondering if it's stylistic somehow (futuristic-looking?) or just a mistake.--Piratejabez (talk) 17:26, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
It looks as if he tried to move the labels down, but didn't select the whole line: [1]. But it seems odd that he wouldn't notice it right away, since it cut ALL the digits in half. Linea alba (talk) 18:47, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for sharing. Yes, that's very plausible. Strange that he wouldn't notice it, though...--Piratejabez (talk) 19:51, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

If anyone's interested, I just used to calculate the Star Wars Trilogy Tipping Point, i.e.- the date starting on which The Phantom Menace will have released closer to A New Hope than to the present day: May 13, 2021. -- 18:23, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! I was wondering. That is a bit more hopeful.--Piratejabez (talk) 19:51, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Be sure to get "Comics to make one feel old" in those categories. 19:31, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Shouldn't the alt text say "A *long* time ago (...) in a galaxy far, far..."? 00:46, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Damn, so close to May 4th, i wonder if there is anyway to prove that this can technically be the right day ("May the fourth be with you") Jack1197 (talk) 05:08, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Is anyone else here getting tired of these 'this event is closer to another event than to today' things? :/ 10:06, 25 January 2015 (UTC)

Not yet for me. We are further away from the new millennium than the new millennium seemed like in 1984. Ooooh! c. June 1, 2000 is the Nintendo NES/now midpoint. Ooooh! Most of the 80s is now over 30 years old. Ooooh! The women that were barely 18 in all of it are now post-menopausal! Ooooh! Early 80s sorority girls could now have great-grandchildren old enough to like giiiirls! 17:58, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
